ON THE WINGS OF A DREAM

Yesterday I had a dream about dying

About laying to rest and then flying

How the moment at hand is the only thing we really own

And I lay in my bed and I wondered

After all has been said and is done for

Why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone

Is this life just a path to the place that we all have come from

Does the heart know the way and if not, can it ever be found

In a smile or a tear or a prayer or a sigh or a song

And if so, then I sing for my father

And in truth you must know I would rather

He were here by my side

We could fly on the wings of a dream

To a place where the spirit would find us

And the joy and surrender would bind us

We are one anyway

Anyway we are more than we seem

There are those who will lead us

Protect us each step of the way

From beginning to end

For each moment, forever each day

Such a gift has been given

It can never be taken away

Though the body in passing must leave us

There is one who remains to receive us

There are those in this life who are friends from our heavenly home

So I listen to the voices inside me

For I know they are there just to guide me

And my faith will proclaim it is so

We are never alone

From the life to the light

From the dark of the night to the dawn

He is so in my heart He is here, he could never be gone

Though the singer is silent

There still is the truth of the song

In the song

Yesterday I had a dream about dying

About laying to rest and then flying

How the moment at hand

Is the only thing we really own

And I lay in my bed and I wonder

After all has been said and is done for

Why is it thus we are here

And so soon we are gone

Oh, why is it thus we are here

And so soon we are gone
